When it comes to prepping surfaces for painting, we get asked a lot of questions. That’s why Moloney Painting includes full details of our preparation practices on all of our quotes. Our prep work typically inculdes washing/cleaning/dusting surfaces, scraping peeling/flaky paint, power & hand sanding to smooth edges, applying a coat of primer to bare wood, and taping/masking off windows and other areas. We also prep the surroundings by covering and protecting gardens, decks and sidewalks when painting the exterior of your home, and covering furniture and other personal assets with high-quality drop cloths when painting the interior of your home.
There is a reason why we include full preparation. If a customer requested that we just paint with no prep, we wouldn’t take the job. We like to paint what we prep. That way we take full ownership of the project’s quality in case anything goes wrong.
